Cate Sports Academy is a summer sports camp for kids and teens. Offering half day, day and sleep-away options for current 3rd through 11th graders. Our coaches truly care about your child's independent growth. CSA places an emphasis on both athletic advancement and personal development. We believe in a unified sports camp culture so regardless of your chosen sport, you will interact with all athletes during meal times, group activities and in the dorms to foster friendships and a sense of community during your time on the Mesa. Be sure to include CSA in your child's summer plans!


Cate Summer Institute generates excitement for academics and the outdoors through creative learning, out-of-the-box thinking, and inclusion of all people, ideas, and cultures. We empower our students to build confidence in their own abilities and appreciate the differences of others. Each day participants will have an outdoor session, a primary class, and an elective. In the evenings, students will enjoy games and activities planned by counselors, many of whom are Cate graduates. Cate Summer Institute strives to maintain a high level of program quality by limiting enrollment so early registration is encouraged.


Cate Summer Outdoors is an unforgettable weeklong experience that develops leadership skills and builds confidence. With our Outdoor Adventure program, Campers will enjoy all the natural beauty Santa Barbara County has to offer while challenging themselves with activities such as stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, surfing, and our ropes course. Urban Hiking offers campers the opportunity to learn about urban planning, route mapping, street art, and the flaneur lifestyle. As we explore each new neighborhood, we will learn about what defines a city and find creative ways to build trust and kindness within the community. Depending on the day, we will walk anywhere from 4-8 miles in the following locations: Carpinteria, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Solvang. Lace up!


Cate Summer Mini is a partnership with the Cate Early Learning Center.

 MINI camp is specifically designed for preschool children ages 3 through 5. Your child will make new friends, build social skills & develop teamwork in this encouraging environment. Through specialized instruction from our experienced and licensed preschool teachers, hands-on activities, and on-site field trips at Cate School, children will think, create, and explore the world around them. Our Summer weekly themes provide children with the opportunity to do something they love or try something new and think outside of the box. Our themes change each week during summer so your child will have access to a variety of experiences without leaving Cate School. Cate Summer MINI is a fun and exciting way to make the most of summer!
